Package Summary

The Prosilica GigE Linux SDK allows users to control and capture images from Prosilica's GigE Vision gigabit Ethernet cameras. The ROS package automatically downloads and extracts a tarball, installs headers and libraries, and builds a few useful example programs.

We currently use version 1.20 of the SDK, released 7 April 2009. It is known to work with version 1.36 of the Prosilica GigE Vision camera firmware. We will update the version for bugfixes and for new features we deem particularly useful to vision applications.

Package Summary

AVT GigE SDK version 1.26 for ROS

NOTE: The recommended way of using Prosilica cameras in ROS is through the driver in prosilica_camera. You need only use this package directly if you are writing your own software for interacting with Prosilica cameras without going through ROS.

Command-line Tools

The package builds several example programs from the SDK that are useful for configuring cameras. All of them can be run from anywhere with:

$ rosrun prosilica_gige_sdk EXE_NAME [OPTIONS]

SampleViewer

A GUI application for viewing the camera image feed and changing camera parameters. Useful for getting a feel for the camera and its many controls.

In ROS these functions are decoupled: the prosilica_camera node interfaces with the camera, the image feed can be viewed with image_view, and dynamic_reconfigure can be used to change certain camera parameters.

Usage:

$ SampleViewer

ListCameras

Continually display the list of cameras connected to the local subnet. Will not find cameras across an IP gateway; if you know the camera IP address try Ping. If you do not know the IP address see How to Determine Your Prosilica GigE Camera's IP Address.

Usage:

$ ListCameras

Ping

Get the serial number, name and network configuration of a camera at a known IP address.

Usage:

$ Ping <IP>

CLIpConfig

General-purpose tool to get or set a camera's network configuration. Run with no arguments for options. For setting a new camera's IP address, the set_ip tool in prosilica_camera is simpler.

ListAttributes

Lists all attributes of the camera with their current values. Optionally takes an IP address, otherwise queries a camera on the local subnet.

Usage:

$ ListAttributes [IP]

ResetCamera

Hard-resets the camera.

Usage:

$ ResetCamera <IP>

Due to licensing concerns, the SDK sample programs are no longer built or distributed with this package.
